Written answers (Question to Transport)

As Minister for Transport I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport.

It is the National Transport Authority (NTA) which has statutory responsibility for securing the provision of public passenger transport services nationally. The NTA also has national responsibility for integrated local and rural transport, including management of the Rural Transport Programme which operates under the TFI Local Link brand. In addition, he NTA has statutory responsibility for promoting the development of an integrated, accessible public transport network.

In light of the NTA's responsibilities I have forwarded your question to the NTA for direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
